When the sweet-tooth hits
Make an allowance in your daily calorie intake for a little treat. 160 calories will give you 6 hershey kisses or 1/2 cup of Dreyer's Grand Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. (fitnessmagazine.com)
Also, if you are on Twitter you can tweet to Connie Diekman, R.D. and director of nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis. She will send you healthy alternatives. THAT'S a COOL tip!
Find something else to do. Take a walk around the block, drink water, grab a piece of fruit.
Finally, swimsuit season is upon us. Picture yourself in a swimsuit or find a picture of yourself and remind yourself quickly of what you want more. Healthy, FIT body OR the candy?
GOAL: Practice your self-control and get your sweet tooth under control.
